For Note to Self book events, it’s important to find a commonality that levels the playing field and places all of us on the same page. That’s why I typically talk about non-forgiveness. It’s one of the heaviest loads (emotional baggage) we can carry or drag with us. I usually start by saying:
Every single person in this room, without exception, will need to extend forgiveness to someone at some point in their life for something the other person did or failed to do.
Likewise, every single person in this room, without exception, will need to receive forgiveness from someone at some point in our lives for something we did or failed to do.
Then I read a passage from Note to Self that begins on page 116. If you have a copy, you may want to check it out.
Has extending forgiveness, or the lack thereof, played a role in your health and wellness?
